how to resolve lowid?


hi there:

i have been trying out various p2p apps and have run into the problem of "lowid". it basically says that i have lowid.

i have tried opening ports in my Belkin (enabling inbound/private poarts in virtual servers section) router and its still the same.

is there anyting i need to set up inside Linux? something like the network conf or somthing.

many thanks

CHUN

ps. i have a dual boot with XP and since the ports opend in the router, p2p works perfectly in XP but still the same (lowid) in linux (FC2).

What do you mean by p2p, like file sharing? I use Limewire for that, Limewire works a lot better. All you need is Java, and the ability to edit the PATH variable....

If firewalled, p2p client will always get lowid.
Opening port 4662, however, will solve this pridicament

thanks, i understand that i will have to open port 4662 for tcp and 4672 for udp. i (think) i have already doen so on my router. i guess my question is that is there a conf file that i need to specify somewhere in linux?

cheers

ok, i think this is where i am stuck, i don't know much about network stuff. i presume firestarter is the app that manages the firewall, right? so what i need to do is to find out what app fedora uses for firewall and then apply the rules to it, right? but i remember that i desabled firewall when installing fedora back then though.

cheers
